Juhi Chawla: I never thought I would be able to play a villain

Juhi Chawla, who will be seen in a negative role in the upcoming film Gulaab Gang, was very apprehensive about doing the role as she never thought she would be able to play a villain. She was also worried as to how the audiences would perceive her in a negative role.

“When the director narrated me the script, I liked it but felt was he sure of casting me in this role… Has he mistaken me for some other actor. I was scared and worried if I would be able to do this role… Would I be accepted. Later on when I kept reading it (story), I got convinced I could do it… I tried my best. I did not realise I would be able to play villain on screen. I hope it does well. Before this film, I was never offered a negative role… I am happy this film came my way and I did it,” said Juhi.

In the film, she will be seen sharing screen space with her once-upon-a-time rival Madhuri Dixit. The two were never seen together on screen. “I said yes to the film because of two reasons — Madhuri was in it and secondly the script. She is a wonderful actor and good looking,” Juhi said.

“There were times when I had the chance to work with Madhuri, but we were rivals back then and I was like, ‘I will not work with Madhuri’… There will be comparisons. But when this offer came I couldn’t say a no to it,” the 46-year-old actor added.
